It has been a long time since I updated all of you who have helped me get to this point today.
Been going through my own personal healthcare nightmare, but that is another story.
Today, December 12, 2020 is my 3 year Anniversary for when this book was published.
A little bit behind the curtain:
This is what I did for about a month straight back in 2016-2017
☆[Editing with an Editor]
1) Get up at 4:45 A.M.
2) Shower and Breakfast
3) Arrive at Coffee Bean right when it opened: 5:30 A.M.
4) Edit until computer (not charging in wall) would die.
5) Take a break, walk outside, eat, coffee, pay bills, make calls, and recharge while my dead laptop charged
6) Repeat steps 4 & 5 until Coffee Bean closed: 10 P.M.
7) Drive home and look over edits until midnight
8) Unwind until 1:00 A.M.
10) Repeat Steps 1-10 next day
This is how I was able to do it. Insane? Yes! It took patience, time, energy, my health, and whatever social life I had before, during, and after. It also should be mentioned how much the Inkshares Writing Community helped shape what this story eventually became...a wild ride.
And here we are, 3 years later. Thank you to Inkshares for taking flight with this story through Quill, for Nerdist who pushed me to tackle this Juggernaut of a challenge, for my Cover Designer, Aaron Harvey (@GeekFilter , Host of Infinite Trek and author of Star Trek - The Official Guide to the Animated Series rb.gy/qr9bbi
), my Editors at Story Perfect Publishing for believing in me and helping me through the chaotic process), my friends and followers, and most important my mom and dad, without I would not be who I am, plus my dad (@Wizardofpaint https://wizardofpaint.com/
) read EVERY SINGLE draft. The rough ones and the Final version.
ThanQ from the bottom of my heart. Be safe, wear a mask, and write your story (we have the time)!
Checkmate and rummy my dear Gladiators,
